The Leconfield Wines McLaren Vale Marathon is a beautiful run through the vines with a stunning backdrop of the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges. 

Unfortunately, there is much uncertainty around what the extent of COVID in South Australia will be and what restrictions might be in place for mass participation events so the McLaren Vale Marathon will not be held in 2022.

Rest assured that we are fully committed to making the McLaren Vale Marathon the jewel in the South Australian running calendar and it will be back with a run for everyone in autumn 2023!

Come for the run and experience much more…

Just 45 minutes south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is situated between the rolling Mount Lofty Ranges and Fleurieu Coast.  One of Australia’s premium wine regions, it is home to more than 80 cellar doors and vineyards, boasting many international award winning wines.

But there’s much more than just the wines… Come and explore our pristine beaches, forests and trails, art galleries and attractions.  The region also offers a smorgasbord of fine dining spots, food producers, markets, microbreweries and distilleries.
